depression, personal, ministry Your Life, Health And Relationships Can Change For The Better

 

How, you ask? By simply addressing the roots of your life, health and relationship issues. That's what this Web site is about. It's about helping Christians live the abundant life you're entitled to. Because hurting people continue to hurt people, this site provides resources, services and products for Healed People to Heal People.

Life If you address the symptoms of your life, health and relationship issues, they will continue. That's why we prefer to identify the roots, then dismantle them according to biblical principles. Then, the symptoms will eventually go away.

Health Do you know one of the most preferred ways to distract a person? It is to inflict pain, illness or addictions in your physical body. This includes mental illnesses. That's why you’ll find information and products about health, the human body and what the Bible has to say about disease and illness on this site. Inclusive is life-changing information about the biblical roots of disease and illness. Be In Health Global owns this information and is gracious enough to allow it to be shared on this site.

Relationships My goodness, every day we have the opportunity to improve our relationships. The question is do we have the desire, the mental capacity and the willingness to give it another try. The other question is since what we've tried hasn't worked to improve our relationships, what should we do differently? Might we suggest learning how to identify the roots behind the issue -- that is what you can't see with the natural eye.

How We at Healed People, Heal People facilitate the healing process by offering personal ministry, group ministry, consulting, educational teachings and training. Our training was at Restoring The Foundations International, Be In Health Global and Pure Herbs Ltd.

Roots How do we identify the roots of life, health or relationship issues? First, we asses what happened generationally in your life and family; this contributes to your issue. Second, we present what you really believe about yourself, what you really believe about others and what you really believe about God that does not align with the truth of the Bible; this contributes to your issue. And please know that most people rarely know what beliefs they operate out of daily that is contributing to them being trapped in the same life, health and relationship issues. Next, you need to receive healing for who and what has caused pain in your life; this keeps your issue in place.

Joy We've had the privilege of seeing the Holy Spirit positively change lives on every continent using simple, biblical healing and deliverance. Be encouraged to browse the site to participate in the forums, listen to healing music or consider supporting this marketplace ministry. Your life, health, and relationships and can change for the better!

 

 



  • Beloved, biblical, Chester Kylstra

    If you are going to do business with God, the currency is forgiveness.

    Hello Beloved reader. I decided to write this unforgiveness article for you because it helped me. A few months back I attended an open-to-the-public ministry session where these questions were asked. I think many of us Christians were surprised at how many times we answered yes. Remember now – be honest with yourself. No one will see your paper but you.

    Unforgiveness is one of the most powerful enemies in the body of Christ today. Do you know how many illnesses or infirmities are directly related to unforgiveness? One thing all people who are called to work in healing and deliverance should know when dealing with illnesses is to learn if the person standing or sitting before them has an issue with unforgiveness.

    It is critical to learn if there is a single person that they’ve not forgiven. It is necessary to ask the person when exactly in their life were they diagnosed with the illness. Proceed to ask the person what life events were going on at or near that time. Often, the following are typical responses a person might give.

    I've experienced betrayal. I lost my job and the boss could have let another person go because I was there longer. These are two of many reasons any person could share as to why they’ve not forgiven someone.

    Now listen, beloved reader, do you know that sometimes people have instantly been healed of their infirmity on the spot once this unforgiveness has been taken care of spiritually. Keep in mind this is one of four things that must be addressed in an integrated healing & deliverance ministry session.

    Will you get out a piece of paper and a pen, pretty please? Now, read the statements below. Each time the statement is true for you, make a check mark on your paper. Once you’re done reading each statement on the unforgiveness stronghold, you’ll talley up your score.

    Answer these unforgiveness questions honestly


    1) I find myself holding grudges.

    2) I retreat into isolation from others.

    3) I erupt in anger or I boil inside.

    4) I think of ways to get even with others who hurt me.

    5) I just bury the wrongs done to me without really addressing them.

    6) I pity myself.

    7) I carry bitterness and anger towards those who have hindered me or willfully, purposely wronged me.

    8) Instead of stating the truth, I make excuses for those who wronged or hurt me.

    9) I often feel sorry for myself.

    10) Occasionally I think I truly am some kind of martyr.

    11) Nobody has had it as bad as me.

    12) I want to get even with people who’ve cause me pain.

    13) I insulate or protect myself behind the walls of defensiveness.

    14) I don’t trust others.

    15) I just can’t forgive [which really is you want forgive].

    16) I’m anger with God for allowing bad things to happen to me.

    17) I act like nothing happen instead of confronting issues that have hurt me.

    18) I can’t get over my past.

    Please talley up your check marks to see how you scored.

    If you have 1 – 4 check marks, you’re in the lower percentile [25%] of operating in unforgiveness.

    If you have 5 – 9 check marks, you’re in the middle percentile [50%] of operating in unforgiveness. This is average for most Christians. Now, we all know what the Bible clearly states about any unforgiveness, right? So even if you scored in the lowest percentile, it needs to be taken care of.

    If you have 10 – 14 check marks, you’re in the upper percentile [75%] of operating in unforgiveness. Yep, you betcha – this sure enough has to be addressed because you’re in bondage beloved.

    If you have 15 or more check marks, you very likely have the stronghold of unforgiveness. If you don’t know how to break this stronghold and remove the demons holding it in place in your life, learn or go receive ministry please. What book would I suggest that’s a must read, Biblical Healing & Deliverance: An Integrated Approach to Biblical Healing Ministry by Chester & Betsy Kylstra.

    Beloved reader, you already know the key to forgiveness is releasing the debt. By forgiving, you are not justifying what the person did to you is okay. By forgiving, you are not minimizing the devastating impact what they did has had on your life.

    Well, here's the age old question – why is it that it’s so darn hard to forgive some things, some people. It is because the one time hurt or the repeated hurt has wounded your soul or wounded your spirit or wounded both. Usually the hurt(s), even though they can’t be seen, have really crippled you inside. The crippling could be mentally and/or emotionally and/or physically. Some hurts have downright debilitated some of us to the point that illness occurs.

    And if we're transparent here, not forgiving the person make some Christians they have a [false] sense of power over the person [especially if the person wants to be forgiven]. As long as we choose to not forgive any person for any thing, we literally carry that person with us daily. What do I mean? You have a shackle attached to a ball-and-chain at the bottom of your ankle.

    The weighted ball-and-chain is directly attached to each person you've not forgiven. You literally carry their body weight around with you all day long. In the shower, to bed with you, in the car with you, to the grocery store with you. More importantly, you carry those you've not forgiven with you mentally and emotionally every day, which is yet another reason you're weighted down internally. Although we still respond to people saying, "We're fine, blessed, highly favored."

    So beloved reader – we’re at a crossroads here. The Bible says to forgive and that forgiveness is non-negotiable. Well yeah, this is true. What’s been learned in integrated healing & deliverance is sometimes we first have to have the Holy Spirit take care of the hurts at every spiritual and emotional level before the forgiveness can even be approached. And in very extreme cases, the forgiveness takes times, like in layers, which is better than not at all.

    Please know if you are a person who works in ministry or if you are a leader of any kind, people will violate you. You cannot afford to allow this unforgiveness to place you in bondage. Let’s look at Joseph’s life in the Bible. He had so many reasons to not forgive his brothers. What did Joseph do [Genesis 39]? He stayed before the Lord, and yes, he forgave his family. Even though Joseph was a grown man, he sobbed like a child.

    What is forgivness?

    Is a spiritual decision to release the person, entity, institution or group who hurt you, betrayed you

    Is cancelling someone from the consequence of falling short of God’s standard in your life

    Is releasing resentment toward the very person who exacted very real hurt on you

    Is dismissing our demand that the person owes us something

    Is releasing the right to be bitter

    Is releasing the right to get even

    Is of God

    Is releasing the right to hear the words, “I’m sorry.”

    Is an act of our spiritual will

    Is a process especially for those who’ve been abused/deeply hurt

    What forgiveness is not

    Is not a feeling

    Is not an emotion

    Is not being a doormat

    Is not conditional

    Is not stuffing your anger

    Is not based on what’s fair

    Is not excusing the wrong done to you

    Is not justifying the wrong done to you

    Is not you executing God’s wrath

    Is not repentance

    Is not based on what a person deserves

    Is not you waiting for time to heal all wounds

    Is not reconciliation [requires a minimum of two people] [forgiveness only requires 1 person]

    Is not enablement [a form of people pleasing and repeatedly having no boundaries]

    Is not letting the guilty off the hook, you are placing them on God’s hook

    Is not denying that the wrong happened to you

    The characteristics of an unforgiver

    Danger - If you persist in resisting and disobeying God by being unforgiving [or whatever the sin is], you can eventually to given over to the influence of evil, satan and immorality. Acts 7:42

    does not agree with God that sin is sin

    delayed or even the prevention of spiritual growth

    heart is turned away from God

    go through verbal acts of repentance

    an unforgiver often has diseases & functionally sick

    is limited in hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit

    an unforgiver can have psychological problems

    an unforgiver can be a person laden with stress

    elevate yourself above your offender

    you’re emotionally stuck to your offender

    you share negative information about offender

    automatically open the door to satan and his demons

    a hardened heart, a condemning heart

    tend to be verbally abusive

    blind that you’re becoming like your offender

    an unforgiver ages faster

    being an unforgiver affects your body’s ability to fight disease by weakening your immune system

    an unforgiver can have emotional instability – fly off the handle easily or show very little emotion

    Define the spirit of unforgivness, which is a stronghold

    A simple word to describe this spirit of unforgiveness – hurt, a person who is deeply hurt.

    A spirit of unforgiveness goes beyond temporary unwillingness to forgive.

    The spirit of unforgiveness is a spiritual acid that eats through the spirit within us.

    The spirit of unforgiveness is a supernatural cancer that slowly and deliberately eats you up.

    There is a long time period between the time you are hurt and the time you forgive the person who hurt you.

    When does unforgiveness become a stronghold?

    When you refuse to forgive and the unresolved anger develops a fortified place in your mind and heart; you become mentally captive to do the enemy’s will. Ephesians 6:16

    The three parts of forgiveness

    Part 1 |Horizontal line of The Cross -- Forgiving others and others forgiving you

    Especially needed toward family and church members because this is where most hurts come from

    Part 2 | Vertical line of The Cross -- Receiving God forgiveness and us releasing God

    Part 3 | Circle or halo where The Cross intersects -- Forgiving yourself and receiving forgiveness from self

    Why do Christians have the most difficulty forgiving themselves than any other person?

    Lie no. 1 - Sin we committed, the offense is too big to forgive

    Lie no. 2 - We knew better and committed the sin anyway

    Lie no. 3 - It’s a habitual sin and we continue to do it, it doesn’t deserve grace

    Lie no. 4 - We’re so shamed by the sin, we should not exchange the shame for forgiveness

    Lie no. 5 – You believe you don’t deserve forgiveness because of who you are

    Here, it’s effective to say your own name.

    For example, “Your name goes right here, I forgive myself for ____.”

    So why do you not forgive when you know to do so

    What was done to you or by you was too big

    The hurt was planned, intentional and/or repeated

    No modeling of forgiveness from our parents

    They didn’t forgive me, I will not forgive them

    You deny it never happened

    Don’t understand God’s forgiveness

    You believe the lie that bitterness is a normal response because God knows how you feel.

    The pain is so deep [even though it may be simple to others] you just don’t know where to begin.

    It is here where you allow the Holy Spirit to heal the pain completely first, then you’re able to forgive.

    How does unforgiveness affect your prayer life?

    blessings are withheld from us

    our prayer life is blocked

    we are spiritually dim

    God doesn’t forgive us

    God resists you

    What is unforgiveness?

    unforgiveness is a form of pride

    is of satan and his demons

    grieves the Holy Spirit

    showcases a godless heart

    keeps us in bondage to sin

    is an offense to God, which makes us an offender to God

    Psalm 118:8

    It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. Help me sweet Jesus to write this article. Okay, beloved readers, a part of this Healed People, Heal People community. Why am I stammering at the keys on my keyboard today? The Holy Spirit taught me a lesson about 10 years ago that I will never forget. It’s about s-o-m-e people, good people, Christian people, loving people, those who love you, those who surround you on a regular basis, or those who may even be in your corner.

    Psalm 118:8 declares it's better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man.

    Okay, here goes.

    We all have churches that are headed by pastors and leadership teams.

    We all have family members, some of which we love, some we don’t care for too much – and some we just can’t stand [sorry, but it’s a reality for some].

    We all have confidantes.

    We all have those fun-to-hang-out with partners.

    We all have those let-your-hair-down with friends.

    We all have those kicking-it with buddies.

    And we even have those select Christian people we like being around who will not check us when we are clearly stepping outside of the boundaries and principles of the Lord.

    We even have accountability people -- we still have a choice in how much we disclose to them.

    We all had or have secrets, some are not-so-big secrets, some are closet secrets, some are in-the-dark secrets, some are go-to-your-grave secrets, some secrets just cripple the hell out of you.

    You decide what you do with your secrets. I can tell you this, the Lord never intended for us to carry the internal weight of the secrets. Many of our illnesses come from keeping secrets. Some of our constant mind racing comes from not being able to still the secrets.

    Much of depression spurs from buckling secrets that people try to keep the lid shut down on. Many of your spiraling urges come from trying to holster your secrets. Many things we do to escape, including sleep, is to not deal with the harshness of our reality -- the secrets, the impending, unnecessary, illegitimate weights.

    We all have those ride-and-die friends – no matter what, these friends will be there for us. Make no mistake about it, this is an extremely short of list people – it may even be one person – it may only be the Lord Himself.

    But, beloved readers, you know what our Lord taught me 10 years ago that I’ve n-e-v-e-r forgotten?

    Don't ever put anyone's word, advice, counsel, approval, consent, guidance or direction above what I say, says the Lord.

    This was a very hard lesson for me to learn and live by.

    Why?

    Because some of those Christians who loved me, then, and still love me, now, gave me advice, counsel, guidance – that didn’t line up with the Word of God.

    Did they love the Lord and do they love the Lord? Yes, these Christians did and do love the Lord.

    Did I own a Bible? Yes, I did own a Bible, then, and; yes, I do own several Bibles now.

    Did I know the Word? Yes, I knew the Word and; yes, I know even more Word now.

    Did a little flicker go off inside of me when these loving Christians told me what I wanted to hear? Yes, the Holy Spirit pushed that flicker button inside of me. But, I knew what some of the loving Christians said to me over the years did not line up with the Word. [I'm not being sarcastic when I use the words loving Christians; I'm sincere.]

    They padded their advice, lined their counsel and justified it with scripture – I think the Bible calls this itching ears, on my part. And let's mention this, there are a lot of Christians, even Christians in leadership positions, who are so wounded they believe life's experiences more than they believe the Word of God. And accordingly, they give advice, counsel, approval, direction based on experience. It's your responsibility to know the Word for your life. It's your responsibility to know when scriptures are being misaligned.

    Now, what each of us reading this article knows, is that we tell people, even Christians exactly what we want them to know. An ole' pastor once told me, it’s just human nature to do this – tell folk o-n-l-y what you want them to know.

    Beloved reader, do you disclose every single, slither of information to the people you’re seeking input from? I’ll leave that for you to answer.

    I always flinch, in particular, when Christians say, “Follow your heart.”

    Excuse me, beloved readers, I am not trying to be disrespectful, but that statement above is just plain dumb.

    “Follow your heart.”

    Do you know when I graduated from undergrad, I did a Bible study for two years just dealing with the different conditions of the human Christian heart.

    You know what’s an even better question, beloved reader, Do you know what’s in your heart?

    If so, how do you know what's in your heart? What have you done about the contents of your heart?

    How often do you inspect your heart?

    How often do you present your heart to the Holy Spirit?

    Do you know what to do once the Holy Spirit has revealed the contents of your heart?

    Well – I offer several versions of the scripture below.

    Jeremiah 17:9 [NIV]
    The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [NASB]
    The heart is more deceitful than all else, And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [KJB]
    The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [AKJV]
    The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [ASV]
    The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [Bible in Basic English]
    The heart is a twisted thing, not to be searched out by man: who is able to have knowledge of it?

    So, beloved reader, help me understand again why so many people, especially Christians, throw out the statement so casually, “Follow your heart,” or “I just follow my heart.”

    I’m choosing to believe based on the Word of God and based on my experience in integrated healing and deliverance and based on the experience of veterans in the ministry of integrated healing and deliverance – that people, Christians, are simply making this statement, “follow your heart,” out of ignorance.

    I used to wrestle with the following questions when I really respected and esteemed some Christians who gave me counsel. Now keep in mind these were internal thoughts I had in my mind about these Christians. I am still in relationship with the majority of these Christians.

    Thoughts I had after receiving advice, counsel, direction from some respected Christians

    - but, look at their position in the community, they are so visible
    - but, look at how much they study the Word of God
    - but, look at their leadership position in the church
    - but, look at how much influence they have
    - wow, I really need to stay in their good graces, they can help me
    - but, they seem to be pretty close to the Lord, do what they say
    - I know they wouldn’t tell me wrong, I’ll do what they say
    - but, look at their walk with the Lord [what’s visible to me]

    Beloved reader, what I have painfully learned from our Lord is this scripture, It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. Psalm 118:8

    Why do I use the phrase painfully learned? Because I had to go around the darn mountain over and over – I sound like the Israelites, right? The first time I realized the advice from the respected, respective Christians landed me in hot water, why didn’t I confess to the Holy Spirit, I’m sorry for not listening to Your whisper in my ear.”

    Each time, beloved reader, I remember the Holy Spirit placing that little flicker inside of me saying, ”That’s not the way to go;” “Don’t ignore Me.” But I yielded again and again, beloved reader, because I respected Christian people more than I esteemed the Word of God. These respective, respected Christians said what I wanted to hear and what they said aligned with my desires, my will -- a recipe for impending disaster.

    Now, in Psalm 118:8 the end of the scripture says, … than to put confidence in man.

    Well, who is man?
    Man is any human being breathing who is in your life, male or female.
    Man is any human being, Christian or non-Christian.
    Man is any human being in any income level.
    Man is any human being on any status level.
    Man is any human being in every rank of the Christian church.
    Man is any human being in your family.
    Man is any human being who is your friend.

    The beginning of Psalm 118:8 says It is better to trust in the Lord …

    Yall, I’m literally b-e-g-g-i-n-g you, trust the Lord.
    If you don’t know how to trust Him, just tell Him, He already knows.
    If you’re scared to trust Him in an area of your life, just tell Him, He already knows.
    Wherever you’re deficient in trust, ask Him to build that in you for you since you’re not able to do so.
    If you’ve not dealt with the issues preventing you from trusting the Lord, would you consider asking the Holy Spirit to reveal these things to you.
    Would you consider receiving ministry for integrated approach to healing and deliverance for these issues?
    Why?
    So, you can experience freedom in this or these areas of your life.

    Don’t have itching ears like I did; ask the Holy Spirit to remove your itching ears.
    The Holy Spirit knows that we all have desires and dreams and wills.
    He truly has better plans for us than we’re able to muster up for ourselves.
    His plans for you don’t even involve manipulation and maneuvering and dodging.

    Yall, I guess by now, you know I’m a born and breed [USA] southerner – that’s fine.
    Let's ask the Holy Spirit to reveal our spiritual blind spots.
    Let's ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the areas of our lives we’re in denial about.
    Let's ask the Holy Spirit to reveal areas in our lives where there may be self hatred.
    Then when He reveals, please, please, take action to do something about it.
    If you don’t know what to do, I’m willing to find a resource to help you, if I can’t.

    Yall, I understand that you may not disclose everything to people, but please, don’t lie to yourself. You desire the abundant life the Lord speaks of so often in scripture, right? Well, the abundant life is short circuited when we choose to do the following things:

    - pretend you don’t know the Holy Spirit is nudging you
    - cut corners to try to get what you want
    - only disclose so much information and purposely conceal other pertinent information to those you seek counsel from
    - you choose to turn a deaf ear to the Holy Spirit
    - you choose to forget that some blessings and some promises of the Lord are conditional; Have you met the
    condition(s) without compromising?
    - wrongly use scripture, people, situations, [conditional] prophecy to justify something you want
    Please remember that satan and his demons have strategy too for your life.
    And his strategy is presented very nicely, not in a questionable fashion.

    Whatever word, advice, counsel, approval, consent, guidance or direction you receive, even from Christians, put it before the Lord, please, before moving forward. And wait for His confirmation or His denial and His instructions.

    Now, let me share this with you. I know the respective Christians throughout the years didn’t provide advice to hurt me on purpose. Although we’re Christians, we are humans. We have good days. We have days when we’re not as sharp, when we’re not on point. Well-meaning, God-loving Christians have been and can be used strategically by demonic in your life -- even without them knowing it and you knowing it.

    We all recall when Jesus spoke to Peter in Matthew 16:23. Jesus was very aware that the demonic was working through Peter. Yes Peter, a man who literally was chosen and walked with Jesus. I'll keep this brief by simply asking these questions. Are your spiritual tools keen enough to discern when God-fearing Christians are off kilter who give you advice?

    Do you even know what your spiritual tools are? What do you do to improve your spiritual tools? How often do you use your spiritual tools? Spiritual tools are similar to the physical muscles in your body. They becomes stronger the more you exercise them and use them on a regular basis. Spiritual tools become stronger they more they are stretched out of their comfort zone.

    People ask me and you for advice in areas that we may be weak in. When you realize that a person is asking you for advice in an area you're weak in, do you disclose that this is one of your weak areas, up front? Do you or have you chosen to do what's in the best interest of the person by stopping the conversation and sharing in integrity that this isn't an area you're strong enough and disciplined enough to provide counsel, advice, consent, approval, direction or guidance.

    You and I ask people for advice in areas that they are weak in, but we don’t know that because they don’t disclose it [the majority of the time]. And even when we see -- through people’s repeated actions that they’re weak in certain areas, we sometimes still choose to seek their advice, their counsel.

    This is not wise, beloved reader. So this begs the question, why do we ask them? Because they’ll tell us what we want to hear. This is a clear sign of spiritual immaturity and/or lack of exercising godly wisdom in this particular area of your life.

    Psalm 118:8 reads, It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. Please do not esteem man, woman or Christians words higher than the Word of God for your life, please.

    Thank you for taking your time to read this article, beloved reader.

    I am ... Sasha Fierce. Who is Sasha Fierce?

    I strongly encourage you to send this article to every youth pastor, parent and the leadership of every youth department that you know. This article is credited in its entirety to Latter Days Ministry Web site. Their site is not to be confused with the Latter Day Saints or Mormons. The ministry is called Latter Days because believers are in the last days leading up to the second coming of Jesus Christ. Latter Days is a Christian ministry dedicated to preparing God's people for His imminent return.

    Here is a riddle for you. How does a nice, Christian girl become a whore, a witch, and a manslayer? The answer is she doesn't; someone else does. Are you confused yet? Well, just keep reading.

    Beyonce announced in 2008 she wants to be called Sasha Fierce. Fittingly, the name of her new album is, I Am ... Sasha Fierce. So what? you may say, "That is just her stage name, all the stars do that." Is it just a stage name? Let's see what Beyonce has to say about it. [emphasis added by the writer of this article from Latter Days Ministry Web site]

    “When I see video of myself on stage or TV I’m like, ‘Who is that girl?’ That’s not me, I wouldn’t dare do that." Beyonce, September 2003.

    "I created my stage persona to protect myself, so that when I go home, I don't have to think about what it is I do. Sasha isn't me." Beyonce, Parade Magazine, December 2006

    "I wouldn't like Sasha if I met her offstage." Beyonce, Parade Magazine, December 2006

    "I have someone else that takes over when it's time for me to work and when I'm on stage, this alter ego that I've created that kind of protects me and who I really am." Beyonce, Press Statement, October 2008

    "Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I'm working and when I'm on the stage." Beyonce, Press Statement, October 2008

    "I’ve created an alter ego: things I do when performing I would never do normally. I reveal things about myself that I wouldn’t do in an interview. I have out-of-body experiences [on stage]. If I cut my leg, if I fall, I don’t even feel it. I’m so fearless, I’m not aware of my face or my body."
    Beyonce, Marie Claire interview, October 2008

    Beyonce believes that when she is performing, another person takes her over and causes/allows her to do things that she would not ordinarily do. While in this out of body state, she is not aware of, and loses consciousness about, her own body! Her performances are so debased and exhibit such debauchery, that she cannot even bring herself to acknowledge what she is doing [and what she has become]. Instead, she has created this alter ego that allows her to escape her actions and attribute them to another person. So, it is not Beyonce grinding, hunching, pumping, and stripping half-naked on the screen ... it is Sasha!

    Even on her Web site, she allows you to see these different personalities. At the bottom of her site, you can slide the pointer over to the I am side where the entire site becomes lighter in appearance. Here, the pictures of Beyonce appear provocative and revealing, but her facial expressions are more demure. Slide the pointer to the Sasha Fierce side and the entire site becomes dark while the pictures take on a more sadomasochistic feel.

    You know what they call this in the world? It’s called Multiple Personality Disorder that involves a disturbance in identity whereby two or more separate personalities or identities, known as alters, control an individual's behavior.

    You know what it is called in Biblical terms? Double-mindedness, or as stated in the Greek dipsychos that literally means two minds or two souls.

    "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways." James 1:8

    The double-minded person continually falters between two choices - God and satan - because an unclean spirit [demon] has taken root in their souls.
    I Kings 18:21

    The presence of this demon spirit defiles the soul. James 4:8

    In order for the heart to be purified, the unclean demon spirit must be cast out."Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me." Psalms 51:10

    How does Beyonce go from disliking and disassociating herself from Sasha to embracing and becoming Sasha? It is the evidence that the demon Sasha is taking her over. The more Beyonce gives room [an open door that gives legal right to the demon to enter, inhabit and take residence in a person] to Sasha in her life, the more her own personality will be suppressed and overcome by that demonic spirit.

    This is illustrated in Beyonce's I Am Sasha Fierce tour. She demonstrates that when it comes to a battle between herself and Sasha, Beyonce loses and Sasha wins.

    Beyonce appears as virginal, innocent, and sweet dressed in white, which is the image often presented of her. Yet, we know this image has no substance as she reaches for a double-sided coin and is exposed in a way that is neither pure nor innocent. It is a depiction of whoredoms as purity, which is really what the whole Beyonce/Sasha dichotomy is about.

    Beyonce proceeds to toss the coin into the air, with one side representing Beyonce and the other side representing Sasha Fierce.

    Link to video on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1zwnq-2EBs

    Notice how the crowd cheers as Sasha wins the flip of the coin. Many Beyonce fans identify more with Sasha than Beyonce, and there is a reason for that. We will explain this later.

    Is Beyonce's identity really just a result of chance? Is this just a promotional gimmick? Or is something else going on entirely here fellow Christians?

    "... for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage." II Peter 2:19

    "It’s entertainment and I believe god is okay with that. I honestly believe He wants people to celebrate their bodies, as long as you don’t compromise your Christianity in the process." Beyonce, The Sun, October 2003

    In 2003, Beyonce was still trying to hold on to a semblance of Christian life. She was able to deal with her role as a member of an R&B trio because in her own mind, it was just entertainment. It was all okay as long as she didn't compromise her Christian principles.

    But what happens when the world begins to demand more? What if holding onto Christ begins to interfere with your career aspirations? How do you deal with the fact that the way you dress, the things you do, and the words you sing are immoral? You adopt another personality so that you can have it all, Christ and the world - or at least that is what Beyonce has tried to do. Matthew 6:24

    You may resent me [the writer of this article on Latter Day Ministry’s Web site] for saying this, but I desire to see Beyonce set free. I cannot even write this post without great sorrow over what is happening to this young girl. Frankly I find those who relish in her demise to be sickening. It turns my stomach that people will sing and dance along with her music as they watch her being overcome by what she acknowledges is something beyond her control. Such people care nothing for her. They would rather see her life shrivel up and her spirit crushed as long as the music keeps playing. Think about that the next time you are singing along with her latest hit. While you may be enjoying the beats, it is coming to you at the expense of her own life.

    G. Craig Lewis of EX Ministries has an eye-opening documentary series entitled, The Truth About Hip Hop. Beyond exposing the Hip Hop genre, Minister Lewis does a tremendous job of explaining how satan is using today's music to channel worship unto himself.


    Similar to how the presence of the Lord is ushered in during a church's praise and worship service, the world's performers also instruct their fan(atic)s in the ways of worship. Performers encourage fans to raise their hands in surrender, call out their name, and incant the words over themselves as they sing along. This creates an atmosphere of worship whereby a transference of spirits can occur as they invite the spirits undergirding these entertainers to enter their own souls. Even secular news outlets reveal this truth in describing Beyonce's I Am Sasha Fierce concert, "The mostly female audience, a collective of worshipers made up of all ages, shapes and sizes, danced along."

    In the case of Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce, they go one step further and place a curse over all of their fans by holding their hands up in a pyramid framing their left eyes to channel the all-seeing Eye of Horus. In Egypt, the pharaohs were considered to be a reincarnation of the false Sun-god Horus/Ra. The Eye of Horus is a reminder that Horus/Ra is keeping watch over and protecting mankind. As a representation of his daughter, the Eye of Horus is also referred to as the goddess Sekhmet [also spelled Sachmet]. Although not an Egyptian name, the name Sasha itself literally means Guardian of Mankind. It is the same spirit presented in Sachmet. Yet who are Jay-Z and Beyonce guardians of mankind for?

    There is a video on YouTube illustrating Jay-Z and the rest of his lackeys making the song Lucifer, Don of the Morning. Part of the lyrics in this song [to use the word lightly] include, "And when I perish, the meek shall inherit the earth. Until that time, it's on and poppin', church." Immediately after this part in the song, Jay-Z says, "That's my word. I never read the Bible a day in my life. I don't even know how I knew that though."

    Jay-Z, let me help you understand. There is a demon speaking through you! These are not your words, these are not your styles, these are not your beats. You are just a vessel through that Satan can get across his message. He is using you, and your supposed genius is nothing more than the demonic rantings of a fallen spirit being. Who is the "I" waging war against the church of God? Who is the "I" who must perish before the meek inherit the earth? It surely isn't Jay-Z. It is the false god, Ra; a representation of Satan himself.

    According to Egyptian mythology, Ra became angered by the people's rejection of him. He then plucked a symbol of his daughter - his own eye [the all-seeing eye] - out of the royal serpent and sent her forth as a lion in the earth to destroy mankind. We are told on the ancient Egyptian religion and mythology Web site that in her blood lust, "She waged war on humanity slaughtering thousands until the fields were awash with human blood."

    There is a reason why Jay-Z thinks that he is god.
    There is a reason why Jay-Z sings tributes to Lucifer, Don of the Morning.
    There is a reason why Beyonce's alter ego is named "Sasha."
    There is a reason why Sasha has married "Jayhovah, the God MC" [as he calls himself]. There is a reason why Sasha is "fierce."

    Fierce is defined as violently hostile or aggressive in temperament, given to fighting or killing, marked by unrestrained vehemence, wild or menacing in appearance, savage, cruel, barbaric.

    "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12

    Do you think these things are just occurring by happenstance, that it is just coincidence? Scripture says to know no man after the flesh. II Corinthians 5:16 These are spiritual forces at work. Sasha is on a rampage, and under the tutelage of the false god Horus' all-seeing eye, she is on a mission to destroy.

    Before satan could fully use Beyonce, he had to diminish her resistance to the Sasha demon. There was a progression in Beyonce as she grew closer to Jay-Z; a progression in her music, in her performances ... and in her acceptance of Sasha. Gone was any innocence that may have been associated with her earlier image; now she shifted to Crazy in Love [the first song released on her previous CD titled Dangerously In Love.]

    "Sasha Fierce was born when I did Crazy in Love. People, when they meet me, expect that all the time, but that person is strictly for the stage."
    Beyonce, People Magazine, November 18, 2008

    Beyonce says that Sasha Fierce was born when she did Crazy in Love. This video is an excellent depiction of what Jay-Z's influence has done and how Sasha becomes stronger as Beyonce is [spiritually] killed off. Beyonce sells her soul to become more famous, but the price is that she is left burning in a hellish fire that Jay-Z started so that Sasha Fierce can live. The devil loves to make a mockery of man by putting what he is doing right in your face. Art is indeed imitating life. Yet, what started the fire?

    "Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? Know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? For two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body."
    I Corinthians 6:15-18

    Fornication is the one sin that is actually against your own body, because you are joining yourself spiritually [not just physically] with the person with whom you fornicate. No matter how casual the experience, you have created a soul tie that gives the spirits operating in that person access to your soul. The more you fornicate, the stronger those ties become.

    "But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death." James 1:14-15

    Beyonce's imagery, her songs, her performances ... they are all created to engender lust. Her body is actually the divining rod used to enthrall and instill lust in her worshippers. It is pure witchcraft. There is a prominent woman in Bible who God says was both a witch and a whore; her name was Jezebel. [II Kings 9:22] Like Sasha, she too was a slayer of men.

    "When Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it. And she painted her eyes and adorned her head and looked out of the window." II Kings 9:30

    Jehu, a man of God, was coming to confront Jezebel for her idolatry against Israel. Notice that the first thing Jezebel did was to paint her eyes. This was a dedication ritual used to tap into the magical powers of the Eye of Horus [mentioned at the beginning of this article]. Dark grey paint was used to accentuate the eyes and extend them out to the corners of the face.

    By doing this, Jezebel was asking her gods for the power to seduce and overpower Jehu. The scripture goes on to say that it was some eunuchs [castrated men who were not subject to her demonic charms] who finally cast Jezebel down.

    On Beyonce's site, when you slide the pointer at the bottom of the page to the Sasha Fierce section, the pictures on the top of the page change. Every single Sasha picture featured has Beyonce adorned with this eye dedication. As seen in the Bible, she is using the Eye of Horus to be endowed with a Spirit of Seduction and to use that spirit to entrance others [like youth, males and women].

    This demonic Spirit of Seduction will be imparted to those who follow after her. While that may sound glamorous, look at the price of insanity that Beyonce is paying to entertain that demonic spirit. Even more telling, look at the end that Jezebel suffered for the same - cast down, trampled underfoot by horses, and remains eaten by dogs. God says that He will not suffer a witch to live and the demise of Jezebel illustrates God's vehement anger against this demonic spirit.

    What Happened To One Beyonce Fan: The Demonic Spirit of Seduction


    In preparation for one of his The Truth About Hip Hop videos, Minister Lewis interviewed a young girl who talked about her experience as a fan of Beyonce. She initially was a great admirer of Beyone's beauty, style, and music. The more she followed Beyonce, the more she wanted to be just like her. But then strange things began to happen.

    Instead of lusting to be like Beyonce, she began lusting to be with Beyonce. The feelings of lust Beyonce inspired were now focused on Beyonce herself. This young girl now had to contend with feelings of lesbianism from the unclean demonic spirits as they attempted to corrupt her very soul.

    Beyonce has a song on her new album entitled, If I Were a Boy. The song might as well be entitled, Why You Should be a Lesbian. In this song, Beyonce sings about all the things that she would do differently if she were a boy in love with a girl. The song lays down the premise that no one can understand and love a girl like another girl.

    We discussed in an earlier post how satan is attempting to prepare mankind to receive the anti-Christ by perverting the nature of mankind into that of a sodomite. Clearly Beyonce/Sasha is playing right into his hand as she is held up for all the world to admire.

    Sasha is not an alter ego, nor a stage name. Sasha is a demon spirit. Demonic spirits within you fellow Christians require [integrated] healing & deliverance, else they remain in your life/body. Because you stop listening to Beyonce’s music or when you stop looking at her videos does not remove the demons you, your children, the youth at your church or adults at your church have opened themselves up to.

    In Jay-Z and Beyonce we have the continuation of the same ancient, unclean demonic spirits that have been trying to influence mankind for centuries. There is truly nothing new under the sun. As seen through the example of Jezebel and Ahab, they rule through perversion as they lead people into idolatry to worship false gods and away from The True and Living God.

    Really think about what Beyonce has said. She finds what she is doing in her life so reprehensible and so contrary to what she knows about God, that the only way she can live with herself is to blame these acts on another person, Sasha! [You are aware that blame shifting is also controlled by a demonic spirit, right fellow Christians.] How then in good conscience can you support and celebrate her descent into madness? Instead of the church being in prayerful intercession for her, many are too busy trying to get access to her latest album.

    There is a bonus track to the I Am ... Sasha Fierce album called Save the Hero. In this song, Beyonce claims to be in need of a Savior. Some of the lyrics include:

    I lay alone awake at night
    Sorrow fills my eyes
    But I’m not strong enough to cry
    Despite of my disguise.

    I bottle all my hurt inside,
    I guess I'm living a lie.
    Inside my mind each day I die
    What can bring me back to life?

    I've given too much of myself
    And now its driving me crazy
    I'm crying out for help?
    Sometimes I wish someone would
    Just come here and save me
    Save me from myself.

    When she's left all alone
    And she’s crying out for help
    Who's there to save the hero
    Who's there to save the girl.


    There is no glam in being demon possessed; it is torture, bondage. It will make you feel as if you are going insane and as if you are dying, because you are [spiritually dying]. Thank God there is a Savior who can give life, who can destroy the disguises, who can save us from ourselves. His name is Jesus, and He is waiting and available to remove the burdens and the bondage for all who come to Him in faith.

    The transformation of Beyonce into Sasha is nothing to wink at. It is a testimony to the reality of the spiritual war being fought for the souls of men. Those who falsely believe [like Beyonce] that God will somehow overlook or excuse their sin, you are deceived.

    There is only one answer for sin, acknowledge, confess and repent according to the Bible. In these end times, those who commit themselves to Christ will be transformed more and more into the image of Christ. Those who commit themselves to satan will be transformed more and more into his image. There is no middle ground. Choices are being made every day as people decide which fount it is from which they will drink. James 3:11-12

    "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be." Revelations 22:11-12

    The Latter Days Web site has received almost 200 comments from readers about this post, and it is a blessing to be able to open people's eyes about what is going on here.

    [Link to the original article and reader’s comments that are at the bottom - http://thelatterdays.blogspot.com/2008/12/i-amsasha-fierce.html]

    Please know that this issue of demonic spirits being channeled through entertainers, including Christian entertainers, is not limited to Beyonce and Jay-Z. Be watchful, prayerful, and wise about the music you and your family listen to.

    Some individuals also find this hard to deal with and claim that this is just crazy. Yet interestingly enough, not one of these persons has been able to dispute the evidence presented.

    They don't dispute Beyonce's own words about what is happening to her.
    They don't dispute the idolatrous spiritual history tying the false god and goddess Ra and Sachmet.
    They don't deny that both Jay-Z and Beyonce actively promote the Eye of Horus/Ra in their music, clothing, and performances.

    All they can do is turn a blind eye and say it is not so.
    Fellow Christians, a blind eye, is called denial or spiritual blindness.
    Both of these strongholds are also controlled by demonic spirits.
    Why are they blinded?
    Because they are already in alliance with that same demonic spirits.

    Jesus Christ came to set the captives free. If you desire to know the truth in any area, pray and ask that Jesus lead you by His Holy Spirit. All those who seek after righteousness shall be filled.

    I strongly encourage you to send this article to every youth pastor, parent and the leadership of every youth department that you know. It is for certain if children or adults have been engaging in watching, dancing, duplicating what is in this article, then each person has certainly created an open door for these demons to enter your life/body.

    Thank you for taking your time to read this article on Healed People, Heal People. If you are not a member of this online community, we invite you to join for free here. There are regular updates of encouragement wrapped in biblical truths.

    Customer testimonial no. 1 for Joint Helper

    Have you ever had your lower back go out? Mine did. I was just bending over watering the flowers. I felt a snap and then I couldn't walk right or stand without pain. This had never happened to me before. I started sweating from panic and then anger that my body had somehow betrayed me. Then I felt very alone and helpless. Was I going to be like this from now on? A thousand things went through my mind in hurry. None of them good. In sheer desperation I remembered the sample of Joint Helper that had just been given to me.

    Somehow I got into the house and got the Joint Helper and put a lot of the roll-on down my lower spine and then from side to side over the back of my hips. First it felt soothing, then cooling, then the heat and tingling kicked in. In a short while I could walk again without pain. I couldn't believe it! The Joint Helper keep working on and off for hours. For the next three days or so every time I needed the Joint Helper, I used it until I didn't need it anymore. Now I carry it with me just in case.

The ideal solution is to avoid the ordeal of a transplant or artificial implant.

    CA.-W [calcium]| Herb. no. 6 for Arthritis

    This calcium combination herb is the vital link in the chain of nutrients required for a healthy body with calm nerves and strong bones. Without it a person may experience cold sweats, teeth that hurt, pounding or irregular heart beat, ringing in the ears, muscle cramps, bones that become like lace [porous] and crumble. Press the tip of the breast bone at the bottom where the ribs come together and see if it hurts.

    If so, you can be assured you lack Calcium. The more sensitive, the greater the problem. Do not despair. Nature has provided the rescuer. Bones were not meant to become weaker with age. Every year an animal lives in the wild, eating its normal diet, its bones become stronger. Did you ever see a cow or a deer with arthritis?

    Cows and deer have incredibly strong bones to support great weight or take the pounding of swift flight from danger or the sheer pleasure of freedom that comes to those that can tirelessly run like the wind. calcium, for them, comes from plants. Now you can have that calcium too - without having to chew all day to get it.

    Horsetail and oat straw are included in this combination for the unusual properties of containing an element named silicon rather than calcium. It is not supposed to be possible, according to scientists, to change one element to another without a thermonuclear explosion, but some body types can, apparently, change one element into another, as in the case of changing silicon into calcium.

    Experiments run with chickens, where all the dietary intake of calcium was carefully monitored and measured, even the calcium in their drinking water, showed increased eggshell production and increased bone density when silicon was added to their diet. They did not get enough calcium to do that.

    That is not possible, but then the chickens did not know that. Perhaps there was something about a goose that laid a golden egg. At any rate, some people who have difficulty assimilating enough calcium to repair a broken leg, do get the that broken leg fixed with calcium filling in the break by taking an herbal Silicon source. CA.-W provides dietary calcium and silicon from active vegetables sources.

    Combination includes| horsetail, oat straw, knitbone, dulse, dandelion leaf, red raspberry leaf, indian tobacco

    Dose | 20 to 40 drops, 3 times per day. In a broken bone or if severely deficient, then 80 drops, 3 times per day

    L.P.-W | Herb no. 7 for Arthritis

    This Liquid Pearles combination herb is for arthritis and correction of circulation are closely associated. When the circulation returns, usually the arthritis goes away.

    Chuchuhuasi | Herb no. 8 for Arthritis

    Chuchuhuasi apparently works on the actual cause of arthritis and, in this manner, restores joints to working order. This is the South American Indian name for the rain forest tree known botanically as Maytenus macrocarpa. Its home is the steamy jungles of Peru, where it is well known and used by the people, especially in and around Iquitos, Peru on the Amazon river.

    Because of the remoteness of this area, its use was unknown to the rest of the world until recent times. Yet, it is now, perhaps, the most popularly used rain forest herb in Peru. Life in a jungle environment means dealing with infections, bites and diseases of many kinds. Remedies must be found and used.

    Chuchuhuasi serves this multi-purpose function, and it is commonly taken in the liquid extract form. Among Chuchuhuasi's strongest properties is the building of immunity and, at the same time, enhancing sexual activity and function. The ability of Chuchuhuasi to do this has attracted strong scientific interest.

    This is accomplished by using the root bark as a liquid and taking orally three times per day. Rather than just working on the relief of symptoms, Chuchuhuasi apparently works on the actual cause of arthritis and, in this manner, restores joints to working order.

    This, of course, has aroused considerable excitement in the scientific community. The same can be said regarding Chuchuhuasi's anti-tumor properties. The United States Department of Agriculture has isolated the alkaloid [active bitter compound] maytansine as being most prominent in the compounds believed to be active in the shrinkage of tumors. As if all this would not be enough to recommend the daily use of Chuchuhuasi, it is also applied to the skin to repel jungle mosquitoes.

    Now, the mosquitoes of the Peruvian jungle are rumored, by the local inhabitants, for the benefit of tourists, to be, So large you can hear them when they walk, and Senior, they may even possess backbones!

    At any rate, accounts of their ferocity are legendary and Chuchuhuasi undoubtedly a welcome remedy.

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops 3 times per day as maintenance. 1 tsp. 3 times per day for more serious cases. Externally as given above.

    Una de Gato | Herb no. 9 for Arthritis

    Una de Gato is a Spanish named herb pronounced that means claw-of-cat or, as we would say in English, cat's claw. In the remote area of Iquitos, Peru, where Una de Gato is at home, it is very widely used and depended upon to handle a wide variety of problems, including those of a serious nature. Here is what is listed in Peru as the traditional and accepted South American Native Folk Medicinal uses of Una de Gato.

    Una De Gato can be taken to correct arthritis, rheumatism, cancer, gastritis, irregularities of the female cycle. From all reports, this is one of the South American Indians' very best arthritis remedies. Although it is not scientifically accepted, people there use it and get rid of their arthritis, including the type we call rheumatoid arthritis, where the body is actually fighting itself.

    Una de Gato is also, especially, noted for its anti-viral properties, tumor dissolving properties, its effects on cellular regeneration and cardiovascular repair. As in all jungle areas, one of the things which must be guarded against is infections.

    Una de Gato is a potent immune system builder. This is especially important in conditions described as rheumatoid arthritis and or osteoarthritis, where the body is attacking itself, commonly called auto-immune reactions. Una de Gato reestablishes the proper immune system orientation for cells that are true friends and those that are the actual foes. A strong immune system is essential to reversing the effects, and prevention, of any kind of disease.

    Hence, a wide range of disorders are reported to be corrected by the use of Una de Gato in Peru and Europe. Very well documented South American medical information shows Una de Gato to be nearly miraculous in combating cancer, even in advanced stages, where as much as 10% of body cells are in a state of metastasis. Because of the shared reputation Una de Gato has earned for itself, no immune problem or cancer is regarded, in Peru, as incurable.

    Dose | 40 drops, 3 times per day to maintain immunity. For disease conditions listed above, 1 tsp. to 1 tbl. 3 times per day. With the use of Una de Gato, as with any herb that destroys bad cells [cancer], do use a good bowel management program which produces 2, and preferably 3, easy and complete bowel movements per day.

    In this manner, the wastes and poisons the body is getting rid of, can be eliminated from the body and nausea is prevented. This allows the body to clean itself up and to get well. Common sense and good sense, both, demand that you eliminate anything from the diet and the environment which is a poison.

    A good place to start, regarding what you eat, is any food with any kind of chemical additives such as: chemical dyes, preservatives, flavor magnifiers, stabilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and the like. Eliminate junk foods - and you do know what those are.

  • Herbs are plant food substances. This is not a scientific definition, it is a practitioners definition. It is used by the people who make recommendations about how to build better health naturally. Herbs have been used since people began eating. They are not new and they were used long before there were people who called themselves doctors or scientists and they worked and they still do.

    There is a solution to every physical problem. It was meant to be that way. It is not experimental. Since there are so many physical differences between us, it stands to reason one herb may do more for a certain person than another but do not despair. There is an herb for you too. Often there are many herbs that are especially helpful for you, just waiting, to be discovered.

    Luckily when eating an herb if the wrong one is taken, nothing much happens and if you do eat too much of it, body mechanisms usually reject it and you leave it alone.Part of the fun is discovering your herb or herbs and in the process an acquaintance with herbs that help other people is gained.

    One of the ways to tell what an herb will do is to taste a little of it. This is much easier to do with a liquid herb than a tablet or a capsule but in any case it should be done before you ask anyone else to try an herb so it will at least be known if what the label says is in the bottle, is in the bottle.

    Please accept this offer to build better health naturally. The information was written because you are respected and appreciated, and loved. Someone does care about you and would like to see you well. Herbs are your birthright. Discover yours. - Dr. A.B. Howard

    FIRST PURE HERB FOR CHARLIE HORSES

    INDIAN TOBACCO - Lobelia

    Uses | Specific for asthma, powerful nervine, cramped muscles, charlie horse, abdominal cramping, antispasmodic, nervouse agitation

    Indian Tobacco is perhaps the most serviceable, responsible and reliable herb of the herbal kingdom. It is a wonderful catalyst [regulator], and as Dr. John Christopher remarked it is one of the thinking herbs.

    It has the power to coordinate, direct and assist ths use of other herbs or act alone, which makes it an herb of much leverage. It's usefulness has encouraged much jealousy from the physicians of lesser ability. Doctors who did not recognize its true properties branded it as poisonous. In active practice, it is seen that the extract under the tongue will, within seconds or minutes [in severe cases], stop spasms, convulsions and asthmatic attacks.

    With use, it easily directs itself and the other herbs to handle the body's condition needing help first and the lesser conditions next. It may also be rubbed on the chest and spine when it cannot be taken by mouth. In those cases where Indian Tobacco does empty the stomach, since it is an antispasmodic, the emesis [throwing up] of putrid material, does not even cause bruising.

    Indian Tobacco will not act as an emetic [stomach pump] unless an emetic is necessary, and then it will act strongly upon the putrid stomach, to empty it without bruising. When rubbed across the entire abdominal area, it will relieve any associated, painful gas.

    Indian Tobacco is very helpful in food poisoning. Indian Tobacco is an antagonist to poison, whether animal or vegetable in origin. Indian Tobacco is at once, both tranquilizing and energizing. This peculiar concept, but experience has proven it to be true.

    For relief of menstrual cramping or relief of charlie horse [painful crampin leg muscle] or any muscular cramping, apply liberally to the area and quickly rub in. When externally applied, please use a good quality extract, not a watery one for the action to be accomplished.

    Dosage | One to 20 drops, one drop at a time on the tongue. [First, brush a little peppermint oil on the tongue if sensitive stomach.] Externally, use as much as required.

    SECOND PURE HERB FOR CHARLIE HORSES

    HI.K.-W [high potassium]

    Generally when a person has charlie horses, the calcium and/or potassium in the person's body is low. Naturally, the person should consume organic foods that have potassium and calcium.

    When a potassium supplement is needed think of HI.K-W [K is the chemical symbol for Potassium in Latin]. Stabilize blood sugar, gain muscular strength, prevent cramping muscles, reduce and or balance out sodium intake, and lose taste for regular salt in the process. Build muscular strength without serious exercise. Give to hyperactive children to normalize blood sugar levels and behavior. Build and restore genuine vigor and reserve energy when taken regularly for 4 to 6 months. Energy boost. Does not burn tissues like regular salt substitutes, as it is all from natural vegetable material and balanced in minerals, with an emphasis on its potassium content.

    What's included in this combination herb | Dulse, peppermint, parsley, dandelion leaf, yarrow.

    Dose | 10 to 40 drops or more, as needed, with meals

    Do you take prescription meds?

    Does someone you love take prescription meds?

    Did you know prescription meds is the leading cause of death in America?


    THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN AMERICA: CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE

    Cause of death

    9/11 terrorist attacks - 2,986 killed

    Chernobyl nuclear accident - 4,000 killed

    Murders each year - 16,000

    Americans killed in Vietnam war - 58,226

    Americans killed by Vioxx - 60,000

    Americans killed by prescription drugs (each year) - 106,000

    Americans killed by conventional medicine (each year) - 783,936


    (page 99-112) “How dangerous are prescription drugs, really? The FDA insists they’re safe enough for widespread consumption, even when one drug, all by itself, has killed more Americans than the Vietnam War.

    The truth is that the vast majority of prescription drugs are not compatible with human biology. Rather then working to support human biology, they typically attempt to hijack the body’s biochemistry to achieve a desired measurable result, and a silent massacre is enacted on the people.

  • womancrying

    Wow, this is a subject that tugs close to my heart strings, how about yours? Do you know how many people have blocked emotions? I do. Guess I kinda used to be one of them. I remember saying, I just really don't like crying -- especially not in front of people.

    Well, why not? The Lord created emotions, actually in the book of Genesis. There must be a reason He created tear ducts, and even biologically and physiologically there's a reason for them.
    I've typically preferred crying alone, you know, it's private, no one sees you and if it messes up your make up, you can straighten it up. Right now, my mind rolls back to two crying episodes I had where I just couldn't control the tears.

    First crying episode

    I was on a business trip in South Carolina and I was tired after landing at the airport.
    I was exhausted emotionally and mentally.
    I decided, I'm not going to work today, instead I'll eat lunch and rest, after all, I don't know anyone in this city.
    I ate lunch and when I finished, a stranger in the restaurant walked up to me and said, "Baby, the weight on you is so heavy, I felt it across the restaurant and I've been sitting over there praying for you."
    I remained quiet, I didn't know her.
    She asked while standing at my table, “May I pray for you?”
    I said yes and she began to pray while touching my hand [the waitresses are now looking because they know we didn't come in together].
    Bear-sized tears began racing from my face because this woman called out everything that was wrong with me and I didn't know her.
    Yes, people in the restaurant are really looking now.
    After praying the lady said, do you have car, did you come here in a car.
    I said yes, my rental is outside.
    She said, go in the car, roll up the windows and cry as hard as you need to.
    I did just that.
    I exited the restaurant, drove across the street to a bookstore parking lot, went way in the back of the parking lot -- and baam, I wailed like an animal in the forest who was wounded and no one was there to rescue them.
    I'll never forget that cry.

    Second crying episode

    I'm now in another state years later and I spontaneously decided to have a meal with a lady I'd met like about two days prior.
    I'd been doing some reflecting on my life and thought I was fine.
    The Lord was dealing with me on an issue I really didn't want to talk to people about.
    After all, nothing is ever going to change, so why bother even addressing it.
    Sometimes you just have to accept things the way they are right?
    No, wrong!
    Why is that wrong, because what I believed DID NOT align with The Bible, the Word of God.
    If what I believe doesn't align, then what I believe is not true.
    The Word of God is true, it is the truth, which meant what I believed was a lie.
    Yes, it had been a reality for a long time, but it was a lie I believed because the situation had been that way for so long.
    Well, let me tell you.
    I sat at that meal table with just about a perfect stranger.
    We were eating.
    And I tried to be civil and talk, do the small talk exchange.
    Lord, that didn't last for two minutes.
    The tear ducts RIPPED and there was no way I could conceal the tears.
    This wasn't a simple cry, the veins in my soul had ruptured and here I am with a complete stranger.
    It's a beautiful thing when you can communicate with a person -- human spirit to human spirit -- without using any words.
    Really in this particular situation it was the spirit of the Lord in me connecting with the Spirit of the Lord in her.
    That lady rubbed my right shoulder and the top of my back.
    She didn't say a word.
    Underneath my breathe I eked out the words repeatedly, "They are not better than me."
    I just kept repeating that because that had been my inner struggle that started centuries before I was born.
    I just bought into the lie because it had been passed down generation to generation to me -- and in ignorance I accepted it.

    Well, Beloved reader, I simply share with you today, you have the freedom and are released to cry.
    Cry in public.
    Cry in private.
    Cry with friends.
    Cry with enemies.
    Cry with your spouse.
    Cry with the Lord holding you.
    Cry in your car.
    Cry in the bathroom stall at work.
    Cry in your woman's lap.
    Cry on your man's shoulder.

    It's okay; you are now released and have the freedom to cry.

  • masturbation

    By Dr. David Kyle Foster

    1. Masturbation can be the vehicle whereby the inhibited person maintains their propensity to remain self-contained and in need of no one. It deepens the trenches of loneliness, self-pity and self-centeredness.

    2. Masturbation is a turning in on one's self -- a narcissistic neurosis that feeds introspection and other dysfunctional directions. This kind of inwardly focused life robs people of the fullness of life that Christ came to give.

    3. Masturbation can become a gateway for demonic strongholds to develop. This becomes more and more likely as one delves deeper and deeper into pornography and perverse sexual fantasies.

    4. This behavior serves to program the mind to focus on fantasy as the source of pleasure rather than the biblical model of union with one's spouse. People come to be seen as objects rather than real people. It is an elaborate scheme of the enemy [satan and his demons] to keep us from learning how to be intimate with our spouse and our God.

    5. When someone takes up the practice of masturbation, they are programming themselves to turn to solutions that block or hide problems rather than solve them. This immature life-pattern for problem-solving is highly dysfunctional and is the foundation upon which is laid a lifetime of addictive behavior.

    6. Masturbation has a physically addictive side to it that serves to block pain. The chemicals that are released into the brain serve to medicate pain much like any addictive drug. God wants us to bring our pain to Him. He wants us to grow through it and receive the blessing of sharing in the sufferings of Christ.

    7. Masturbation is a task master that demands the continual plumbing of new and more perverse depths of lust. On that treadmill, the mind is programmed to more and more highly delineated sexual fantasies, which the marriage bed can never match. Normal marital relations become a disappointment and the design for sex thwarted. The body also becomes programmed to achieve release quickly, which serves to frustrate the patterns of healthy sexual intercourse between spouses.

    8. A clutching at the genitals by infants is often a manifestation of separation anxiety, but that same behavior in childhood is often a sign of sexual abuse or some other cause for significant internal anxiety in the child. If the child uses a mirror during the act, that is a scenario that can result in homosexual confusion, as the child programs their mind to associate sexual pleasure with the sight of their own body. [In such cases, other factors that lead to homosexual neurosis are probably also present, such as molestation or failure to bond on an emotional level with the same-sex parent]. Adolescent experimentation at puberty is normal and not a cause for alarm unless it becomes habitual.

    What does the Bible Say?

    One of the most prevalent rationalizations that people use is that the Bible never mentions masturbation and that it must therefore be alright. Is that logical? Is child molestation alright then? It's not specifically forbidden in the Bible. How about shooting heroin? Or how about torturing someone? Not mentioned! You see how illogical the argument quickly becomes.

    How do we know that smoking dope is against the will of God, for example? We discover the answer by uncovering the principles found in scripture - most specifically those concerning the body being the temple of the Holy Spirit and those commanding us to obey governmental authority. We also know sin by the witness of the Holy Spirit within, provided we haven't quenched that witness through ongoing rebellion.

    The most obvious biblical principle that is applicable to masturbation is found in Matthew 5:28 where Jesus indicates that lusting after someone in the heart is the same as actually doing it. I am violating whomever I am picturing in my mind during the act of masturbation. It really doesn't matter whether it is a picture from a magazine, [Those are real people!], or someone I've met or a memory of some act committed in the past.

    And if I can discipline my mind to think of no one, what of that?

    Attainment of such focus only serves to make obvious the desperation and obsession that drives us to such lengths. The principles found in I Corinthians 6:12; II Peter 2:19; and Romans 6:14 clearly emerge as foundational to our plight -- that we are slaves to whatever masters us. When we get truly honest about the habit of masturbation, it is clear that it is a behavior that controls us -- one that we use to medicate pain, to alleviate stress or to forget rejection. In that way, it is similar to a drug habit -- just one more vehicle to avoid turning to God.

    Why won't we turn to God? We may be ashamed. We may believe that He's going to judge and punish us. We may not trust Him. Or, it simply may never occur to us. We don't normally see God as being involved in the fulfillment of our sexual lives. He's a Spirit after all and we are physical creatures. And yet, He is in fact the answer to every problem. He can quench our unholy desire and He can teach us to respond to problems by working through them rather than from running from them.

    Confessing the Right Things

    It is important that I discover the root sin issues so that I can repent of them. If I am unaware of one or more of these strongholds, I will inevitably remain bound because my unrepented sin will continue to give Satan ground to hold me in bondage. Much of the transformation process involves discovering where Satan's ground is and removing it with the tools that God has provided. What then are some of the root sin issues that need to be confessed?

    1. Unbelief

    Unbelief Is the doubt that God is really good. When I sin any sin, I am in that moment doubting that God is really there for me, that He cares, and therefore, that He is good. I am re-enacting the first sin committed in the Garden of Eden, when Eve became convinced that God was keeping from her something that was good.

    The truth is, God has something better than the coping mechanism of masturbation -- even for the single person. He has something higher, something that will bring completion and satisfaction to one's sexual self. It is this truth that is most effective in being persuaded to forsake the sin.

    2. Idolatry

    Ephesians 5:3-5 clearly teaches that sexual immorality is a form of idolatry. Often masturbation becomes a source of life and peace, especially for those who have lived through great pain. It becomes a substitute god. Should the Spirit come to offer freedom, many will recoil in terror at the realization that they are being asked to live without something that has been a primary source of peace in their lives - something that has kept them from falling apart. The behavior becomes so entrenched in their sense of being that life without it becomes unimaginable.

    Like the worship of any god, masturbation has its own fetish objects and rituals -- times, places, triggers, ritual objects, and ritual patterns that draw the person into an almost trance-like progression toward the peak experience and denouement. Confessing the ritual worship and removing or renouncing its various components is key to seeing its power broken.

    3. Rebellion

    Sometimes we simply refuse to listen to the Holy Spirit or pretend not to hear Him. The self-care of masturbation often cloaks anger and distrust of God, who never seemed to be there when we needed Him. Often in childhood, when God doesn't rescue us or change us upon demand, we judge Him in our hearts and develop a root of anger that must be removed through confession and repentance. That means we acknowledge our rebellion and make concerted choices to love Him and to believe that given the context of human free will, God operates with complete integrity and love.

    4. Love of Sin

    This one is often buried under mounds of rationalizations. We pretend that we need to practice the sin, we deserve to practice it, it's the least God can do to allow it considering what we've gone through, etc. But the truth is, we love it more than we love God. In order to change this, we need to discover how to love God more. Greater love for God comes as a fruit of taking the time to know Him intimately. A lifestyle of worship is important. The demonic realm cannot stand that. Meditating on the Cross is also a major key. As we gain a deeper appreciation for our Lord's suffering, we become more willing to jettison the things that have charmed us most [as the old hymn says]. When tempted, we only need ask ourselves, Who do I love right now - the sin that is tempting me, or the One who loves me so deeply that He died on the Cross for me? Put that way, the choice becomes far easier to make.

    5. Self-deception

    It is a humbling thing to realize that over the years we become masters at deceiving ourselves into believing we want freedom from something that we will not give up. Like an onion, we lay down layer upon layer of self-deception, saying the right religious words and thinking the right religious thoughts, while still refusing to forsake the desire for the sin that lingers in our hearts. We need to acknowledge before God the ongoing impurity in our motivation, the depravity in our heart, and our need for Him to give us the true heartfelt desire to be holy and pure.

    6. Performance-righteousness

    Most of us, even those who know better, continually fall into this trap. Though we talk of grace alone and being able to do nothing without Christ, our fallen nature continuously seduces our minds into believing that we must earn God's love and acceptance and that we must develop our own righteousness. Over and over again we try to make ourselves holy and pure rather than suffer the humiliation of the flesh and truly become dependent on God for the power to live the kingdom life that He won for us on the Cross.

    The Long and Winding Road to Freedom

    It would be nice if God would just zap us and make us permanently free from sin and bondage. But the process of sanctification is often arduous. Through it we learn to value the end result, depend on Him, love Him, trust Him, hate evil and give all glory, praise and honor to God and God alone.

    The foundational principles by which our Lord sets us free from masturbation are no different than those for any other sin and bondage. Simply put, set your focus on Him [rather than your problem] and let His Spirit guide you the rest of the way. In moments of intimacy with Him, God will lead you through a complete shift in your priorities. He will transform your affections and belief systems. He will deepen your desire and determination to be liberated. He will expose and heal the hidden emotional and sin problems that have fed your bondage. And He will strengthen your willingness to believe and to act on His promises.

    1. Learn to give yourself grace. It took you a long time to develop the problem, so in moments of failure, turn and receive the love and grace of God. He is pleased with you because of Christ's sacrifice on your behalf and because deep in your heart, you loved Him enough to commit your life to His Son. God has grace to spare. In fact, it is His grace in the midst of our failure that ultimately yields the fruit of obedience [Titus 2:11-14].

    2. Permanently set your heart and mind to turn to God at the first moment of temptation and with acknowledged weakness and dependency, cry out to Him for His power to quench the fiery darts of the enemy. Commit to being ruthless with temptation -- giving it no place. Let Christ answer the door when it comes knocking!

    3. Remove every influence that leads you into desiring and repeating the behavior. Ask God to show you what these are. Break the ritual patterns and remove the ritual objects as God reveals them to you.

    4. Practice believing that God has something better -- that He can indeed fulfill the needs that are temporarily being met through the illegitimate means of masturbation.

    5. Spend significant, quality time with God in praise, worship, prayer and scripture reading. Pour out your heart to Him. Develop the same intimate relational knowing of God that you would with a spouse. Ask Him to implant within your mind a healthy view of sex and the sexuality of others. Ask Him to give you a love of purity, seeking Him passionately in the beauty of His holiness [Psalm 96:9]. Listen to Him as He unlocks for you the unique keys to your transformation. Listen with a heart set on obeying His direction no matter what He may suggest.

    6. Refuse to submit to Satan's barrage of self-condemning thoughts when you fall. There is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus [Romans 8:1]. Call any thought or feeling to the contrary the lie that it is and reject it. Repent and then run back into your Daddy's arms.

    7. Learn what God really thinks of you by meditating on the Cross. Reject the lies of self-hatred, loathing and shame that are in actuality, elaborate challenges to the Cross of Christ and the promises of God.

    Know that God has the will and the power to set anyone free from anything. Go for the free indeed promise. Seek not the maintenance program of the world, but the transformation program of the kingdom of God!

  • birthcontrolpills

    Do you take prescription meds? Does someone you love take prescription meds? Did you know prescription meds is the number three cause of death in America according to the Journal of American Medicine?

    Are birth control pills safe? Any drug that artificially manipulates the natural hormonal activity of the body will have negative implications and side effects.

    What is the birth control pill? How Does it work? Is it Safe?
    by Paul Weckenbrock, R. Ph.

    The birth control pill is any drug which uses artificial hormones to keep a woman from getting pregnant or from staying pregnant by interfering with her normal fertility.

    Are all forms of the pill the same?

    No. There are several types of the pill on the market, but they basically break down into two groups: combination pills and the progestin-only minipill.

    The combination type contain two artificial steroids that mimic the effects of naturally occurring hormones, estrogen and progesterone. Some pills work in a monophasic way, keeping the dosage of hormones the same throughout the pill cycle. Others work in a biphasic or triphasic manner which alters the dosage of artificial hormones two or three times respectively through the cycle of pills, attempting to produce fluctuations similar to what a fertile woman would undergo naturally.

    The progestin-only minipill uses only one artificial hormone, progestin, which is a steroid that has a progestational effect similar to natural progesterone.

    How does the pill work?

    The pill is designed to interfere with several normal functions of fertility in order to make a woman 1) unable to conceive due to temporary sterility or sperm immobility, and/or 2) unable to carry a pregnancy to term [an early abortion].

    This process can be accomplished in various ways.

    Suppressing ovulation: When a woman ovulates, hormones released from the pituitary , a gland located at the base of the brain, stimulate her ovaries to ripen and release an egg. The combination pill usually interrupts the release of these pituitary hormones resulting in no egg being released from the ovary, thus preventing pregnancy from occurring. With no egg available for fertilization, the woman is chemically sterile. The progestin-only pill, however, has a weaker effect. It generally does not suppress ovulation.

    1. Inhibiting Implantation: Another important aspect of fertility is the process by which the lining of the uterus is replenished and maintained. After an egg is fertilized, it normally implants in this lining [endometrium], drawing nourishment and sustenance. The progestin component of the combination pill and the progestin-only minipill cause the inner lining of the uterus to become thin and shriveled, unable to support implantation of the embryo [newly fertilized egg].

    2. Impeding Sperm Migration: Preceding ovulation, a woman’s cervix produces a watery mucus through which sperm swim to meet the egg. The mucus also provides nourishment to sustain the life of the sperm cells. This mucus thickens under the influence of a progestin and so impedes sperm migration.

    3.There are two other factors in a woman’s fertility that may be affected by the pill.

    Making changes in the Fallopian Tubes: Progestins lower the efficiency with which the fallopian tubes propel eggs from the ovaries toward the uterus. This can cause the embryo not to reach the uterus in time to implant successfully.

    4. Stopping a Pregnancy: After an ovary releases an egg, the woman’s cycle is controlled by a gland that is formed from the now-empty egg sack, the corpus luteum; this normally functions long enough to give an embryo time to implant in the uterus and for the placenta to begin to support the pregnancy.

    However, hormones from the pill can cause the corpus luteum to function inadequately, allowing the lining of the uterus to be shed before the embryo can successfully implant.

    In summary, a woman’s natural fertility requires several systems and organs to coordinate smoothly. The synthetic chemicals in any type of birth control pill interfere with this coordination, adversely affecting her normal fertility and any accidental conceptions.

    How effective is the pill?

    In theory, the pill reaches an effectiveness of over 99%, but in practice the rate is much lower. Between 1.9% and 18.1% of women will experience an unplanned pregnancy in the first year of using the pill.

    Surprise pregnancies with the pill are due to a number of factors. Interactions between the pill and some other medications interfere with the proper blood levels of hormones necessary for their birth control effect. These drug interactions may be significant with the commonly used low dose pill where slight alterations in hormonal blood levels can result in more frequent ovulations and hence unplanned pregnancies. Another factor in pill pregnancy rates is not following directions, sometimes due to the lack of motivation, especially in younger women [ages 15-24].

    Is ovulation always suppressed?

    No. Ovulation occurs in 2% to 10% of cycles of women taking the pill. If 60 million women worldwide are on the low-dose pill, there would be 1.2 to 6 million ovulations per cycle. This is known as breakthrough ovulation, and it is even more frequent with the progestin-only pill.

    What happens when ovulation does occur?

    When the pill fails to prevent ovulation, the other mechanisms come into play. Thickened cervical mucus may make it more difficult for the sperm to reach the egg; however, if the egg is fertilized, a new life is created. The hormones slow the transfer of the new life through the fallopian tube, and the embryo may become too old to be viable when it does enter the uterus.

    If the embryo is still viable when it reaches the uterus, under-development of the uterine lining caused by the pill prevents implantation. The embryo dies and the remains are passed along in the next bleeding episode which, incidentally, is not a true menstruation even though it is usually perceived as such.

    Does this mean the pill can cause an early abortion?


    Yes. Preventing the newly conceived life in its embryonic stage from being transported to the uterus and preventing implantation in the wall of the uterus are the abortifacient properties of the pill.

    Why haven’t I heard about this before?


    The Pill manufacturers and many in organized medicine are mainly concerned about the pill’s medical side effects and its effectiveness in preventing pregnancies and are less concerned about how the drug achieves its effectiveness.

    Unfortunately, many otherwise pro-life physicians and pharmacists find it hard to admit that these abortifacient properties exist because they would have to discontinue prescribing and dispensing the pill if they were to remain consistent in their respect for life at all its stages of development.

    Pro-abortion organizations and their lawyers readily admit the early abortion potential of the pill. In February 1992, writing in opposition to a Louisiana law banning abortion, Ruth Colker, a Tulane Law School professor, wrote, "Because nearly all birth control devices, except the diaphragm and condom, operate between the time of conception ... and implantation ..., the statute would appear to ban most contraceptives." In 1989, attorney Frank Sussman argued before the U. S. Supreme Court that " ... IUDs [and] low dose birth control pills ... act as abortifacients."

    Is It Safe? What are the common side effects of the pill?

    There is a range of risks from serious or fatal to minor and trivial. The following is a list of the most common side effects experienced by women taking the pill. These effects are dose related and not every woman will experience them, but the risks still exist. The synthetic estrogens of the combination pill cause many of these; the progestin causes others and is the only risk factor in the progestin-only pill.

    Heart and blood abnormalities

    Blood clots can form, restricting or blocking the flow of blood to critical organs and other body systems, possibly causing permanent damage. For example, a blood clot in the heart would cause a heart attack; in the brain it would cause a stroke or brain hemorrhage; a clot which moved from elsewhere in the body and lodged in the lung would cause a pulmonary embolism; in the kidneys a clot would cause a renal artery thrombosis and kidney damage; in the retinal arteries it would cause temporary or permanent blindness.

    Studies continue to indicate approximately a 2-fold increased risk of fatal heart attacks among users of the current low-dose pill when compared to non-users. This risk is lower than the risk experienced with the older high dosage pill, but it continues to be significant. Similarly, the risk of a fatal brain hemorrhage is increased 1.4 times when comparing users to non-users. Among women who smoke, there is a 12-fold increase in fatal heart attacks and a 3.1-fold increase in fatal brain hemorrhage.

    High blood pressure and alterations in the blood clotting mechanisms may be seen in women on the pill. This may contribute to a 3-11 times increased risk of developing blood clots in Pill users compared to non-users. The risk is especially great for women who smoke and/or are over 35 years old.

    Cancer

    Breast cancer has been repeatedly associated with using the pill.

    Breast cancer has been increasing at an alarming rate in recent years, especially among young women. Breast cancer will kill more than 44,000 American women this year alone, a 1991 report noted, predicting 175,000 more new cases, especially among young women.

    Why is there such an increase of breast cancer among younger women? Note first that women rarely develop breast cancer shortly after they start taking artificial hormones. It is generally not until ten or more years after usage was initiated that women develop breast cancer. Then note that in the United States, since the mid-1970s, it has been common for the pill to be prescribed for girls in their teen years.

    Common sense connects the link between giving the pill to young girls in the 1970s and the later increase in breast cancer 15 to 20 years later among women in their late twenties and thirties. This conclusion was demonstrated in a study which found that Swedish women who took the pill in the 1960s incurred a five times greater increase in breast cancer when compared to non-users.

    The increased risk of breast cancer is seen in younger, nulliparous women [never having borne children], and in long duration groups [greater than five years] of pill users. Large tumors and a worse survival rate are associated with the pill’s use at an early age.

    Will the newer formulated low-dose pills decrease the incidence of breast cancer? A consensus of understanding has not been reached, and another 10 to 20 years of experience with women using this form of the pill must be gained before more definite conclusions can be reached.

    Breast tenderness, enlargement, lumps, and milk secretions also may occur in women using the pill. Doctors are warned not to prescribe the pill to women who are known or suspected to have breast cancer. It is difficult to say what aggravating effect the pill’s hormones would have over a truly random sample of women taking the pill.

    Cervical cancer and cervical dysplasia increase among women who use the pill. How long the pill has been taken, how many sexual partners a woman has had, at what age she began having intercourse, whether she smokes, the hygiene of sexual partners and the transmission of the human papillomavirus [HPV] are also factors in cervical abnormalities. Because of these several factors, the connection of the pill and cervical cancer may be clouded over. However, there is no doubt that the promotion of the pill has resulted in early intercourse which may be the more direct cause of cervical cancer.

    Endometrial and ovarian cancer appear to have a lower incidence in both women on the pill and in those who have been previous users of the pill. Much of this data comes from studies of women who were using the higher dose estrogen/progestin pill. Currently the low dose monophasic and triphasic pills [less than 50mcg of estrogen] are the only birth control pills available on the U.S. market. It is not known if a similar protective effect will be experienced with the currently used pill. More time is needed to study this issue, and the slight protective effect is hardly a reason to take the Pill at the risk of so many other side effects.

    It should also be noted that these forms of cancer are rare and primarily occur among postmenopausal women in their fifties and sixties. Second, these cancers tend to occur in those women who had long cycles [i.e., with a prolonged estrogen-dominant phase] or those who have a family history of these types of cancer. Third, extended breastfeeding amenorrhea offers the same type of protection against these cancers since the menstrual cycle would be suppressed and therefore the exposure to estrogen suppressed.

    Liver tumors in younger women [15 to 40 years] have increased as the use of oral contraceptives has increased. Almost unheard of in this age group before the use of synthetic hormones became commonplace, liver tumors usually do not occur until the sixth decade of a woman’s life.

    A study by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer found a large peak in the 26-to-30-year age group which corresponds with the increased use of oral contraceptives in this age group. Liver cancer in women on the pill is typically associated with those over 30 who have used it more than four years, but cases of liver cancer in younger women have been cited.

    Other cancers: Skin cancer [melanoma] has also been found to increase among women on the pill. Naturally occurring estrogen is involved with maintaining healthy skin tissue. It is reasonable to suspect that exposure to the more potent synthetic estrogen in the pill increases the risk of this type of cancer.

    Cycle irregularities

    Women who take the pill have been reported to experience bleeding or spotting in mid-cycle, changes in menstrual flow, and even loss of menstruation, which can lead them to wonder if they are pregnant. For some, painful menstruation [dysmenorrhea] has been reported to worsen, even though many women take these hormones in an attempt to relieve the problem.48

    Although some women are given the pill for irregular cycles, it does nothing to improve the underlying problem causing the irregularity. Often the irregularity returns when the pill is discontinued, sometimes more severely.

    Are there other side effects?

    Yes. Some side effects are minor while some may be more severe and call for discontinuing the drug.

    The following adverse effects have been experienced by women on the pill:

    Headaches, migraines, mental depression [even to the point of suicide and/or suicidal tendencies], a decrease or loss of sexual drive, abdominal cramps, bloating, weight gain or loss, and water retention; nausea and vomiting [in about 10% of users]; symptoms of PMS, vaginitis and vaginal infections, changes in vision [temporary or permanent blindness, and an intolerance to contact lenses]; gall bladder disease and either temporary or permanent infertility, when discontinuing the pill, in users with previous menstrual irregularities or who began the drug before full maturity. Several of the symptoms, such as migraine headaches, contraindicate the use of the pill because of life endangering complications.

    Consult the Physicians’ Desk Reference at your public library or consult your pharmacist for a more complete list of the pill’s harmful effects.

    Is the pill safer than pregnancy?

    No. The health risks of the pill outweigh by far the risks of pregnancy and childbirth to a woman’s health, and any claim to the contrary is based on erroneous comparisons between healthy women on the pill and women who do not receive normal care during pregnancy.

    A precondition for obtaining the pill is routine medical care and checkups. For example: if such a woman on the pill is diagnosed as precancerous, or if some other side effect is exhibited, she has the advantage of early detection. However, many pregnant women do not receive routine medical care. A clearer picture of the safety of the pill compared to the safety of pregnancy would be made if healthy women receiving routine medical care during pregnancy and delivery were compared with women receiving routine medical care while taking the pill.

    The mortality statistics of childbirth have continuously declined since the early part of this century, mostly due to better maternal healthcare. Most of the high risk pregnancies and deliveries occur to women who have not sought proper medical attention. This is most evident in the third world where adequate health care is sparse.

    Mortality statistics of pregnancy and delivery, usually called maternal mortality, include the mortality rates due to abortion. Abortion is clearly used as birth control, preventing the birth of the child; therefore it must be included with the mortality statistics of birth control methods. In one study, 25% to 50% of the reported maternal mortality was a result of deaths from abortion.

    Fifty percent of woman taking the pill discontinue it within the first year because of side effects, the development of benign breast disease, or some abnormality of the sexual organs. Studies of pill usage do not include these women, and the result is an unbalanced picture of only the healthiest of women who tolerate the pill. This is compared with the general population of women who are pregnant.

    The fact is that there are 13.8 million women in the U.S. and 60 million women worldwide who use the pill [conservative numbers]. And there are 7.9 pill-related deaths per 100,000 women ages 15-44.

    Therefore, one can calculate that there are over 1090 deaths each year in the U.S. alone simply due to the pill.

    But I’ve heard there are no side effects with the pill I use.


    All drugs, including all brands of the birth control pill, have potential side effects. There is no telling in advance how any particular woman will react to the pill, but there is a good chance of some type of reaction. It is possible that a woman will be unaware that there is any connection between the reaction and the pill especially if it takes years to manifest itself.

    Aren’t there any therapeutic benefits from the pill?

    The only indication, or use for the pill that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration is the prevention of pregnancy in women ... as a method of contraception. Some unapproved uses, considered experimental, include its use as a morning after pill [causing an early abortion], and for relief from the symptoms of mild endometriosis.

    I’m breastfeeding my baby; can I use the pill?

    No. Artificial hormones pass from breast milk to the baby; the pill also decreases both the quantity and protein content of the milk produced.

    What is my alternative to using the pill?


    Natural Family Planning is safe, healthy and effective and it’s also inexpensive. A woman observes and records changes in her basal body temperature, the normal flow of cervical mucus, and if she wishes, the physical changes in the cervix itself. She then cross-checks these signs of fertility to follow, day by day, the natural course of her fertility cycle. No drugs, no devices, no surgical procedures, no threat of death, no side effects, no chemical abortions!

    Does NFP really work?

    Yes. Married couples can achieve a 99% effectiveness if they learn the method, correctly interpret the fertility signs, and follow the rules. One positive side benefit for couples who are committed to making this method work is the potential for a healthier marriage — psychologically, physically and spiritually.

    NATURAL HERBS FOR DIABETES

    My people perish for lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6 For all of you who desire answers to physical problems and desire to build better health naturally here is some information on the historical use of herbs.

    The natural Pure Herbs information shared below about arthritis is an excerpt from the book Herbal Extracts: Build A Better Health With Liquid Herbs.

    This information is not intended to be a substitute for medical advice by licensed physicians. A reader should consult a physician regularly in all matters relating to medical problems, especially in matters of diagnosing, treating or curing diseases or other physical or mental conditions.

    Herbs are plant food substances. This is not a scientific definition, it is a practitioners definition. It is used by the people who make recommendations about how to build better health naturally. Herbs have been used since people began eating. They are not new and they were used long before there were people who called themselves doctors or scientists and they worked and they still do. There is a solution to every physical problem. It was meant to be that way. It is not experimental.

    Since there are so many physical differences between us, it stands to reason one herb may do more for a certain person than another but do not despair. There is an herb for you too.

    Often there are many herbs that are especially helpful for you, just waiting, to be discovered. Luckily when eating an herb if the wrong one is taken, nothing much happens and if you do eat too much of it, body mechanisms usually reject it and you leave it alone. Part of the fun is discovering your herb or herbs and in the process an acquaintance with herbs that help other people is gained.

    One of the ways to tell what an herb will do is to taste a little of it. This is much easier to do with a liquid herb than a tablet or a capsule but in any case it should be done before you ask anyone else to try an herb so it will at least be known if what the label says is in the bottle, is in the bottle.

    Please accept this offer to build better health naturally. The information was written because you are respected and appreciated, and loved. Someone does care about you and would like to see you well. Herbs are your birthright.

    Discover yours.

    Culver's Root | 3rd Pure Herb for Diabetes

    Culver's/black root is a native North American plant is well established in Native American herbal medicine. In France, the herb is known, and appreciated, as Veronique and in Germany, as Leptandrawurzel. This pure herb Black Root was introduced by Dr. Culver into white man's medicine and is hence also known as Culver's Root.

    In the South, where it is still used extensively in folk medicine, it is known as Black Root. The very broad range of maladies, with seemingly no specific origin, which respond favorably to this herb, make it easy to understand why it is so widely and effectively used throughout the South for many kinds of the miseries.

    Certainly, Black Root is, observably, a good bowel cleaner, but much more. It also works especially well on the vital area of the duodenum [first 12 inches of the small intestine], where acid treated food from the stomach meets with the anti-acid secretions in the small intestine and produce a great deal of the body's heat.

    It is vital to the body that this area be balanced between acid and anti-acid activities, otherwise so many kinds of unpleasant disorders and just plain, feeling bad and miseries can occur. Black Root works on lazy and or congested conditions of the stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, both the small and large intestines and restores them to normal and balanced activity.

    Here is a partial list of disorders for which Black Root is given effectively: to remedy fevers [including serious types], expel worms, jaundice [yellow whites of eyes and skin due to congested liver and gall bladder and or infection], swollen glands, infant diarrhea, chronic constipation, syphilitic impurities, sallow complexion, dull frontal headache, thick and white coated tongue and to remedy the condition of pleurisy [excess fluid accumulation around lungs and or heart, with stabbing pain and shortness of breath, short, dry cough, chilliness].

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops each evening. Follow with a little juice, if desired, as its taste is bitterish and somewhat acrid. In stubborn cases, take 3 times per day.

    In serious cases, give hourly, as needed, 10 to 40 drops and at the same time rub into affected areas, [abdominal and or chest areas] in quantity needed to cover the area.

    False Unicorn Root | 4th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    The uses are as varied as they are useful. When kidneys lose protein into the urine, as in Bright's disease, large, persisting bubbles remain on top of the urine.

    This is corrected by False Unicorn Root; as is the condition known as diabetes. When there is an agony or lack of tone in the kidneys or uterus, think False Unicorn Root; as well as in relaxed vagina. Nor are the healing powers of this root confined to the female system. Prostate problems, as well as involuntary loss of semen without orgasm, yield to False Unicorn Root.

    It can be used to correct almost any problem in the reproductive system of either the male or female body. So gentle is this root, that it is also used for a stomach that would reject almost anything else to repair it. If this were not enough, tape worms have been expelled by its use.

    When mixed with Crampbark, fertility has occurred in the most amazing cases where it was thought absolutely impossible due to a variety of good medical reasons. Please, do not use for pregnancy or impotency until the general system is strong enough to bear such activity. When used to promote fertility, mix with Crampbark.

    Dose | 40 drops 3 times per day for the prospective mother and father, taken faithfully for up to a year, if necessary

    Jerusalem Artichoke | 5th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    These are actually the tubers, or potatoes, on the roots of tall growing, small, yellow flowered, wild sunflowers. They require no insulin hormone, from the pancreas, for their digestion, and, as such, are a safe source of carbohydrate for use by diabetics or those suffering from low blood sugar.

    This sunflower is probably one of the most competitive, successful plants in nature. Once you get a start of the plant in your garden, it spreads from its roots with great determination and is hard to kill. An excellent source of food for all.

    One of its primary virtues is a very active enzyme system. The digestive body processes receive a direct and immediate boost. You do not have to be diabetic to use this food from the roots of the wild sunflower.

    Dose | 40 drops after each meal. In more serious cases, one teaspoonful after meals.

    Protein | 6th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    [High quality pre-digested protein fraction of milk] Milk has often been introduced as nature's most perfect food. It probably would be if it could be digested. 18% of the North American population, for instance, has a milk intolerance to cow's milk. That means, for them, milk is a foreign substance that cannot be properly digested. Hence, allergies, skin problems, colds, flu and worse occur.

    This is unfortunate when a person cannot eat the food that might help them. Milk was meant to be a fully sustaining diet for the young, in humans, for at least the first six months. Now, if you could find a way to digest milk, it could become one of the most important protein sources in the diet. A way has been found. Digestive enzymes [proteins that break down food substances] have been added to the finest proteins in milk.

    The result is a life-sustaining source of very high quality protein with very few calories. Remember, cancer patients die, finally, unless mishandled through ignorance, from protein starvation. This can be prevented by giving an adequate protein intake of high quality digested protein.

    For the normal person who wishes to slow down the ravages of aging and its sorrows, protein, vitamins and minerals come to the rescue. Take enough so that you see the difference. For training athletes, a protein supplement, plus protein in the regular food, gives a double intake of protein for rapid development. Heal injuries and surgical operations quickly with increased protein intake.

    To stabilize high or low blood sugar levels, an adequate amount of high quality protein intake, taken frequently and well digested, is vital for normalization of either condition. For young women developing tissue integrity, protein is a must. It may take several months to re-develop true natural stamina from adding adequate protein to the diet, or longer, if under continuing stress. Think about it.

    A person could have gotten worse under stress. To not get worse and actually get ahead of the game is quite something. At any rate, what else would you have been doing? Hence, be patient and rich rewards will be yours, my friend.

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops, daily, following meals, or if need be, in place of meals. If diabetic [high blood sugar] or hypoglycemic [low blood sugar], then up to 1 tsp. or more taken 5 times per day

    Elecampane | 7th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    Uses | Sugar diabetes, mucous membrane irritation, heaviness of pelvic organs, bronchial complaints, tonic, expectorant, emmenagogue [encourage menstrual flow], diuretic, sweating, deobstruent, skin disorders The mystery of sickness has long plagued mankind. There is little doubt that most of our systems today need what the car industry jargon calls a major overhaul. Indeed, most of us could use this and Elecampane performs just that service. With the pure herb Elecampane, parts of the body are cleaned, renewed and reset for proper function.

    Since the time of the Greeks, Elecampane has discovered its use in diabetes. They declared it to correct the sweetness of the urine. Elecampane is a powerful herb much sought after in the field of herbalogy. It may be employed to promote the correct function of the organs of the body.

    Elecampane, gentian, juniper berry, and ginger perform powerful service for failing digestive systems as a digestaid. Since the time of the noted herbalist, Nicholas Culpepper in medieval England, Elecampane has been used for fluid retention, firming gums and lessening tooth decay. In conditions where the body is wasting away, Elecampane and echinacea will restore new vigor and zest for life.

    Dosage | 10 to 40 drops after meals. If on insulin, advise the prescribing physician so the insulin dose can be reduced as the sugar problem is corrected.

    Hibiscus Flowers | 8th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    Contain an astonishingly large amount of two valuable trace mineral elements, chromium and selenium. While it is true that many sea vegetables do contain these trace elements as well, no other single herb has been found with levels as high for these two vital trace elements combined, as in the flower petals of this splendid tropical and sub-tropical flower.

    In order for us to tolerate and use the glucose [blood sugar] normally present in our blood stream, chromium is needed so the nerves and brain can function properly.

    The body makes a substance with chromium in it called glucose tolerance factor. With this glucose tolerance factor the body can then produce and use the hormone, correcting the disease condition know as sugar diabetes [where insulin is not produced in sufficient quantity or even at all].

    The trace element selenium functions much like the oil based vitamin complex known collectively as vitamin e, when it comes to destroying harmful cancer causing compounds in the body, known as free radicals.

    Selenium does this by protecting the genetic machinery of the cell nucleus or cell headquarters, when it is in the process of division to form new body cells. Selenium also corrects heart and circulatory diseases by preventing the break down of the circulatory system.

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops 3 times per day

    Yarrow | 9th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    Uses | Vulnerary [healing], stimulant, tonic, diuretic, high blood sugar The honorable Greek hero of legend, Achilles, said the juice from fresh Yarrow put into the eye will take away redness. The American Indian knew Yarrow as a swift remedy for the rundown feeling and indigestion.

    He further used Yarrow as a remedy for increasing the urinary flow from the kidneys. Although sweating has become socially unacceptable, it is essential to the health of the skin. For those able, sauna and exercise are recommended. Yarrow settles nerves and thus reduces high blood pressure. It relieves shortness of breath and wasting of spinal marrow.

    Its list of successes is legion. Beneficial results in this partial list confirm its revered status among herbalists: childhood diseases, including infant diarrhea, uterus problems, Bright's disease [egg white material in the urine], gas, piles, sore nipples, fistulas, flu and hair loss. Yarrow may be taken for involuntary loss of urine, bed wetting, spitting up of blood, as a nervine and as a remedy for common colds and high blood sugar.

    Dosage | 30 to 60 drops three times per day in fluid or under the tongue

    DB.8-W | 10th Pure Herb for Diabetes

    This is a combination herb. [diabetic 8] The eight herbs of this combination are all known to have, by themselves, corrected high blood sugar for many individuals. Every case of high blood sugar is not alike.

    There are different causes that can plague the pancreas and its proper production of the hormone insulin to break down blood sugar and provide energy for the nerves and brain. The idea here is to put all the known solutions into one team and use a double-barreled-Texas-shot-gun approach to clearing the hall; point both barrels, close your eyes, squeeze the triggers and let the problem have it.

    Although the complete knowledge of how some herbs work is not fully known, we can tell by what they do, something about how they work.

    In this combination herb DB.8-W we have the following pure herbs. The Pure Herb Lapacho that is known to kill and dissolve bad cells sometimes known as cancer.

    Elecampane cleans and reconditions the entire digestive and respiratory system. All things generally work better when they are clean. Mugwort is known to kill parasites, including those that can affect the pancreas.

    Golden Seal is an herb that can perform many functions of discretion depending on what it finds to be corrected: lowering blood sugar, performing as a first rate antibiotic, as well as reducing inflammation of veins and arteries.

    Blueberry Leaf may provide minerals and trace elements that correct pancreatic function, as well as cleaning and toning of the area.

    Bugleweed helps the body retain valuable protein leaking through the kidneys and thus, helps stabilize blood sugar if high or low.

    Gentian is a digestaid that gives direct assistance to the pancreas, as well as the stomach, liver, gall bladder and small intestine.

    Yarrow provides a rich mineral array that calms and repairs the nerves, including those that go to the pancreas. The idea here is, just about any contingency is covered and something, or the combination of some things there of, is bound to work and may do so powerfully.

    Combination includes | Lapacho, Yarrow, Blueberry Leaf, lecampane, Golden Seal, Gentian, Mugwort, Bugleweed

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops, 3 to 4 times per day
